The upper end of the support post 11 of the armrest support 1 is provided with two screw bores 112. The support post 11 of the armrest support 1 is combined with the connecting member 10 by a fixing bolt 101. The armrest support 1 further includes a substantially C-shaped snap ring 100 mounted between the support post 11 and the connecting member 10.

The locking member 2 has a cross-sectional profile corresponding to that of the support post 11 of the armrest support 1. The locking member 2 is received in the sleeve 4 and provided with two through holes 21, and the armrest further comprises two locking screws 22 each extending through a respective through hole 21 of the locking member 2 and each screwed into a respective screw bore 112 of the support post 11 of the armrest support 1 to secure the locking member 2 to the support post 11 of the armrest support 1.

The sleeve 4 is movably mounted on the support post 11 of the armrest support 1 and has an inside provided with a receiving hole 40 mounted on the support post 11 of the armrest support 1. The upper end of the sleeve 4 has a periphery provided with a plurality of screw bores 41 and has a side provided with an elongate slot 42 connected to the receiving hole 40.

The positioning member 33 of the lifting device 3 is provided with two opposite protruding ears 330 each provided with a screw bore 331. The positioning member 33 of the lifting device 3 has an inside provided with a mounting chamber 335 to allow movement of the slide 32 and has a top provided with a through hole 332 connected to the mounting chamber 335. The mounting chamber 335 of the positioning member 33 has a side provided with a mounting space 333 to receive the elastic member 31. The mounting space 333 of the positioning member 33 has a side provided with a protruding limit flange 334.

The control knob 34 of the lifting device 3 has a surface provided with a protruding stop flange 341 abutting the elastic member 31 and has a side provided with an elongate limit channel 343 slidable on the limit flange 334 of the positioning member 33.

The movable shaft 30 of the lifting device 3 is movable in the locking hole 20 of the locking member 2 and the receiving chamber 111 of the support post 11. The movable shaft 30 of the lifting device 3 has an upper end provided with a rotation rod 303 rotatably mounted in the through hole 332 of the positioning member 33, a driven rod 304 mounted in and driven by the driving hole 320 of the slide 32 and a limit rod 305 slidable in the limit slot 342 of the control knob 34. The driven rod 304 of the movable shaft 30 is movable relative to the positioning member 33 when the slide 32 is movable relative to the positioning member 33 to drive the movable shaft 30 to rotate relative to the positioning member 33 about the rotation rod 303. The rotation rod 303 of the movable shaft 30 is provided with a screw bore 309, and the armrest further comprises a fastening screw 36 extending through the through hole 332 of the positioning member 33 and screwed into the screw bore 309 of the rotation rod 303 to attach the movable shaft 30 to the positioning member 33. The upper end of the movable shaft 30 is provided with an enlarged top edge 301 that is movable to abut the locking member 2 to stop movement of the movable shaft 30. The movable shaft 30 of the lifting device 3 has a lower end provided with an enlarged bottom edge 306 that is movable to abut the locking side 24 of the locking hole 20 of the locking member 2 to prevent the movable shaft 30 of the lifting device 3 from being detached from the locking member 2 and the support post 11 of the armrest support 1. The toothed portion 302 of the movable shaft 30 is located between the top edge 301 and the bottom edge 306.

The mounting plate 35 of the lifting device 3 is provided with a plurality of through bores 353, and the armrest further comprises a plurality of fixing screws 38 each extending through a respective through bore 353 of the mounting plate 35 and each screwed into a respective screw bore 41 of the sleeve 4 to secure the mounting plate 35 to the sleeve 4. The mounting plate 35 of the lifting device 3 is provided with two through holes 350, and the armrest further comprises two locking screws 37 each extending through a respective through hole 350 of the mounting plate 35 and each screwed into the screw bore 331 of a respective protruding ear 330 of the positioning member 33 to secure the positioning member 33 to the mounting plate 35. The mounting plate 35 of the lifting device 3 has a top provided with a protruding mounting stud 351 which is provided with a screw bore 352 for fixing the support arm 5 to the mounting plate 35.

In operation, referring to FIGS. 5-10 with reference to FIGS. 1-4, when each of the locking teeth 307 of the movable shaft 30 aligns with the locking side 24 of the locking hole 20 of the locking member 2, each of the locking teeth 307 of the movable shaft 30 is locked by the locking side 24 of the locking hole 20 of the locking member 2 to lock the movable shaft 30 onto the locking member 2 as shown in FIGS. 6 and 7, so that the sleeve 4 is fixed on the support post 11 of the armrest support 1.

When the control knob 34 is pushed toward the positioning member 33 to compress the elastic member 31 as shown in FIG. 8, the driving rod 340 of the control knob 34 is slidable in the oblique guide slot 321 of the slide 32 to drive the slide 32 to move relative to the positioning member 33 so that the driven rod 304 of the movable shaft 30 is driven by the driving hole 320 of the slide 32 to move relative to the positioning member 33 and to drive the movable shaft 30 to rotate relative to the positioning member 33 about the rotation rod 303. At this time, the limit rod 305 of the movable shaft 30 is slidable in the limit slot 342 of the control knob 34, and the limit channel 343 of the control knob 34 is slidable on the limit flange 334 of the positioning member 33 during rotation of the movable shaft 30 as shown in FIGS. 5 and 8.

When the movable shaft 30 is rotatable relative to the positioning member 33 to the position as shown in FIGS. 9 and 10, the planar side 308 of each of the locking teeth 307 aligns with the locking side 24 of the locking hole 20 of the locking member 2, so that each of the locking teeth 307 is unlocked from the locking side 24 of the locking hole 20 of the locking member 2 to unlock the movable shaft 30 from the locking member 2 so that the movable shaft 30 is movable in the locking member 2 and the support post 11 of the armrest support 1 freely. In such a manner, the sleeve 4 is movable relative to the support post 11 of the armrest support 1 to adjust the height of the support arm 5.

After the force applied on the control knob 34 disappears, the control knob 34 is pushed outwardly relative to the positioning member 33 by the restoring force of the elastic member 31 as shown in FIG. 5, and the driving rod 340 of the control knob 34 is slidable in the oblique guide slot 321 of the slide 32 to drive the slide 32 to move relative to the positioning member 33 so that the driven rod 304 of the movable shaft 30 is driven by the driving hole 320 of the slide 32 to move relative to the positioning member 33 and to drive the movable shaft 30 to rotate relative to the positioning member 33 about the rotation rod 303.

When the movable shaft 30 is rotatable relative to the positioning member 33 to the position as shown in FIGS. 6 and 7, each of the locking teeth 307 of the movable shaft 30 aligns with and is locked by the locking side 24 of the locking hole 20 of the locking member 2 to lock the movable shaft 30 onto the locking member 2, so that the sleeve 4 is fixed on the support post 11 of the armrest support 1 again.

Accordingly, when the control knob 34 is pressed, the movable shaft 30 is unlocked from the locking member 2 so that the movable shaft 30 is movable in the locking member 2 and the support post 11 of the armrest support 1 freely, and the sleeve 4 is movable relative to the support post 11 of the armrest support 1 to adjust the height of the support arm 5. In addition, a user only needs to press the control knob 34 to adjust the height of the support arm 5 so that the height of the support arm 5 is adjusted easily and quickly in an energy-saving manner, thereby facilitating the user adjusting the height of the support arm 5.

Although the invention has been explained in relation to its preferred embodiment(s) as mentioned above, it is to be understood that many other possible modifications and variations can be made without departing from the scope of the present invention. It is, therefore, contemplated that the appended claim or claims will cover such modifications and variations that fall within the true scope of the invention.
